I find it suspicious, when the news is bad for the Bush administration and the Republican Congress, some al- Qaida leader releases another tape. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. The terrorists are the Bush administration's best friend. Without them, they wouldn't have one positive thing to go on TV with.
While talking about terrorists 24/7 may not be positive, it keeps the news media from talking about all the corruption in Washington, D.C. Are the same lobbyists who own the leaders in our congress working with terrorists on when to release these tapes? For now, we have the best government money can buy. These same congressional leaders who have been selling our government to the highest bidders, will try to win another term by using fear.
As for the so-called war on terror, we need not go to Iraq to find the terrorists. Thousands of people are crossing our borders daily, illegally. They are here, just the same as the last ones who harmed us. The same congressional leaders think voters will put their heads in the sand and forget what it cost to go to the grocery, pay their insurances, fill their prescriptions or from increasing school fees and real estate taxes, just to name a few. After congress passed that all-important Republican energy bill, filling our tanks shot way up, heating our homes up 50 percent and a 20 percent increase in electric bills is on the way. But to get re-elected, just scream terror.
